Jazz and Contemporary Music School , NY
 The School's 20,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility was designed specifically to help young artists realize their goal of becoming effective music professionals. The facility offers administrative, classroom, practice, and rehearsal space, all constructed with the highest quality and attention to acoustics, soundproofing, and aesthetics. All classrooms are fully dedicated with Yamaha grand pianos, drum kits, amplifiers, vocal PA systems, and full component stereo systems. Specialized instrumental practice and teaching rooms are offered as well as a listening library and piano/MIDI labs. Performance and recording needs are served in an intimate and beautiful performance space seating 120, with full capacity for professional sound, lighting, and recording. A second recording studio is used for additional recording and engineering, with both studios connected to the university's server and Internet sites, with possibility for both posted archival recordings and live streaming performance. Additional university performance facilities within a two-block radius of the Greenwich Village campus include a 170-seat performance auditorium and an excellent and acoustically balanced concert hall with an audience capacity of 500.
The Mission
The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music offers a unique course of study in which a passionately engaged faculty of professional artists, drawn from New York City’s renowned jazz community, guides serious and talented students toward high standards of achievement and the ongoing development of the individual creative voice. Our curriculum is based on the respected tradition of artist-as-mentor, and is taught by accomplished, active artists with significant links to the history and evolution of jazz, blues, pop, and new genres. Our students—the emerging performers, composers, and arrangers who will take their places among the best practitioners of jazz and related genres—combine the expertise traditionally linked to conservatory training with the generative spirit and vigor of jazz. The school sees its mission as “respecting tradition, embracing innovation.”
Faculty
The key to the success of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music lies in its use of experienced professionals to guide the intense involvement of students in the challenges of small-group playing. Students in The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music work with the creators, not just the interpreters, of jazz and its offshoots—music that reaches toward new expressive and artistic horizons.
Tours
Prospective students and their parents are welcome to tour New School Jazz facilities. Tours are offered Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 3:00pm while school is in session.
